On the Day the World Ends by Ishihara Yoshiro (世界がほろびる日に/石原吉郎)

On the day the world ends
don’t catch a cold
Beware of infection
Air out the futon
on the veranda
Don’t forget to turn off the gas
Start the electric rice cooker
at eight o’clock

世界が滅びる日に
かぜをひくな
ビールスに気をつけろ
ベランダに
ふとんを干しておけ
ガスの元栓を忘れるな
電気釜は
八時に仕掛けておけ
